This conference is devoted to the discussion of research that is being planned or conducted by faculty and/or Fellows in General Internal Medicine and General Pediatrics. The conference is intended to provide Fellows an opportunity to receive feedback on their own studies as well as to give feedback to other investigators on their studies. Each 1st year GIM Fellow is expected to present at least once a year; 2nd and 3rd year Fellows, twice a year.

This conference addresses several fellowship objectives, including
1) To be able to critically appraise the medical scientific literature, including the methodology of published or proposed investigations;
